Sue Duff & Dim The Lights

When Sue Duff started writing The Weir Chronicles, she knew she wanted an out-of-the-ordinary super hero. She came up with Ian Black, an illusionist with a talent for keeping secrets. She also came up with the Weir, a magical race who struggle to prevent Earth from self-destructing.

With the publication last month of the appropriately-titled Dim The Lights, Sue Duff closes the books on her five-book chronicles and sets her sights on writing new stories.

On the podcast, Sue talks about the early days of writing The Weir Chronicles and how the first novel went from a desk drawer to daylight.

We also talk about cover design, audio book production, and a first on the Rocky Mountain Writer—none other than Siri barges her way into the conversation.

In addition to writing novels, Sue runs her own publishing house, CrossWinds Publishing, and she is a contributing author of speculative fiction short stories with the award-winning Wicked Ink Books.
